Captain of a back-to-back Stanley Cup-winning NHL team and member of the Triple Gold club, Sidney Crosby is a player of extreme talent and determination, both on and off the ice.


Sidney Crosby has been the linchpin of the Pittsburgh Penguins for 19 seasons (and counting!), leading them to three Stanley Cup victories. He has won the Art Ross, the Hart Memorial, the Maurice “Rocket” Richard and the Conn Smythe trophies twice, the Ted Lindsay Award three times, and has received many honours, including being named to the the Order of Canada. Internationally, Sidney has helped Canada win Olympic gold twice, World Junior gold and World Championship gold, and he is the only player ever to have captained the winning teams at each level.


The Amazing Hockey Stories series takes a deep dive into the lives and athletic journeys of the best players in the game. Through photos, text and illustrated comic sequences, fans will love learning about Sidney’s achievements and the hurdles he overcame to get there.
